Brand new, AA model.
Three different people see the same thing.
Reticle is blurry/fuzzy at all light intensities and eye reliefs.
Normal?
Thanks.

Don't concentrate on the reticle, instead look at your target and focus on it with both eyes open. The reticle will clear up....

OK. I'll give it a try.
Thanks.

Thanks for the advice. I used your method and it is much better than trying to sight on the target with the dot.

Exactly. Another way of putting it is "look through the reticle to the target".

read the EOTech FAQ


taken from the EOTech FAQ

My circle is fuzzy/hazy. Why is this?
That question about our reticle is common. What people usually see onÐline or in advertisements are graphic representations of the reticle. What you are seeing is likely normal. The outer circle of the reticle is made up of hundreds of pixels (small dots that form together to make a larger image). This pixilation is key to being able to see the hologram properly, and is inherent in the technology. You should see the center dot as a single MOA.

A couple things might help make the image appear more distinct:

If you see the image blurry, fuzzy, distorted, having a double image, or having a 'starburst' effect, this usually means the brightness intensity level is up too high for the lighting conditions you're using it in. Dim down the brightness until the reticle is slightly see-through. The outer circle is designed as your reference to center, and acts similar to a ghost ring.
The reticle is projected out to your target plane. If you pick up a target that is very close (like a photo on the wall), your eyes might not focus properly on the image. Pick up sight pictures 25 to 30 yards out until you become accustomed to the sight. Try them at different eye reliefs, and certainly try these things once the sight is mounted on a weapon.
If you require corrective lenses (glasses or contacts) to see things clearly at a distance, you will need them to see the reticle clearly. Remember, the reticle is actually projected out to your target plane, so you will see it like anything else at that distance. Also, if you have astigmatism or use bifocals, you may see the image less distinctly.
Use the sight outdoors, and if possible at the range. Actually acquiring targets with the sight will help your eyes focus properly on the reticle.

Very good and interesting information. Thank you for the post.

I've seen other posts complaining about problems after getting CLP on Eotechs, but they didn't talk about what the problems were.

Anybody seen anything like this?
